"Lucky Hill", a stately colonial style home reminiscent of a grand English manor house, but in a warm tropical setting, is located in the eastern district of New Providence. The entrance to the 4.68 acre estate from Eastern Road is through ornate electronically controlled wrought iron gates along a winding drive through landscaped gardens to the home set on the crest of the hill affording commanding 360 degree views of Montague Bay and surrounds.
The three level home employs many energy saving natural cooling features for maximum ventilation and insulation. All of the windows, which are the casement style, and the French doors have been replaced with high impact hurricane rated double glazed glass with aluminum frames. The large windows offering maximum cross ventilation together with the covered porches, on both the upper and lower levels, and generous 11' 2" ceiling heights have allowed successive owners to forgo central air conditioning.
The interior design of the main house is traditional symmetry. A grand stairway leads from the driveway to a columned entry. Large double mahogany doors open to a large foyer (15' X 36') providing a grand entrance. On the left side of the foyer is a spacious room (20' X 30') featuring a snooker table. To the right of the foyer is an expansive formal living room (20' X 30') with a fireplace. The remainder of the ground floor features a formal dining room (16' X 25'), a family TV room or private office (23' X 15'), a sunny informal dining room (20' X 16'), a large modern fully equipped kitchen (15' X 20'), a butler’s pantry and two powder rooms. Crown moldings feature throughout this fine home. A large covered porch (17' X 57') spans the western side of this level with access from the snooker room and kitchen. Also on this level is a large open porch (72' X 12') overlooking Montague Bay with access from the family room.
Access to the second level is by a magnificent circular mahogany stair to a grand landing (23' X 19'). On this level are four large bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. The master bedroom (24' X 16') and bedroom 2, (20' X 16') are on the north side separated by a large sitting room (20' X 16'). The views from this level are nothing short of spectacular.
